I 'd like some advice about the dosage of Lugol's. I have a lump in my breast which I'm pretty sure is cancer. I had a biopsy and the results are due next Thursday. I've started taking 50mg Lugols with the co-factors, and I'm wondering if I should increase the dose or leave it at this level. I don't have any other health issues that I'm aware of. Also, is it ok to take the iodine with food, or is it better on an empty stomach?
Hi Viv, I wanted to just add that maybe using topical iodine occasionally could be useful, but you have to mix it with coconut oil or another healthy oil because applying it directly to the skin can burn. Some people tolerate iodine better when it is absorbed through the skin and it can be a good way to saturate the breast tissue with it.
Here are some links you can read which give some more information:
Natural Allopathic Medicine has a potent protocol for breast cancer because much of medicinals are applied topically to the breasts.
Transdermal Iodine - The treatment of skin and breast cancer and other conditions.
Please take into consideration that those articles propose many different ways of using iodine and other treatments and I don't necessarily endorse all of them, but the more knowledge you have about different approaches, the more you can have an educated choice on what to do, with the guidance of your own research and medical practitioner.
